Geko Dive has been a PADI Resort since 1998, and is now a PADI 5 Star Resort and TecRec facility. We are fortunate to have one of Bali's best dive staff. Together, the Geko Dive Team can guide and teach in Balinese, English, French, German, Spanish, Indonesian and Japanese. All of our dive guides are excellent divers, with years of working experience on Bali's dive sites. At the same time, SCUBA remains a passion first and foremost. Diving with Geko Dive has always been fun and serene. To make sure that it stays this way, we are not planning to get any bigger than we already are. Dive factories and diving in large herds are not things that the Geko Dive Team enjoys. Diving should be a personal experience! We therefore keep dive groups small (4 max and often less), with similarly experienced divers together. We believe all our guests deserve the ultimate diving adventure with utmost enjoyment and safety. « less

I looked at several dive centres around Bali before the trip and decided to go with them. I'm glad I decided to go diving for three days with them. Everything was handled professionally. The guide were very aware of the local set. I was fortunate to dive with their guide Made for the 3 days including night dive. At one... More

It was our first diving experience. We first tried the Discover Scuba Diving and then decided to continue with the PADI Open Water course. We felt very safe for all the duration of the 3 days course and felt at ease with all the staff and the other divers. Eka, our teacher, was very professional and likeable. He helped us... More

I would recommend Geko Dive to anyone. The instructors where most helpful. I have some physical issues and the guys at Geko worked with me to help me through the course. I can not thank them enough for all their assistance. If your at all apprehensive about learning to dive go to Geko they will help. Thanks for everything Geko

We felt in very good hands at Geko. The staff was always professional, the gear was in fabulous shape, and safety was clearly the priority without any of the fun jeopardized. We drove about an hour with Made to dive the Liberty wreck. The drive was gorgeous and was just as much a highlight of our day as the dive.... More

We found Geko Dive after seeing their boat while diving Tj Sari with another dive operator from Sanur. We decided that to dive the local Gilis (Biaha, Tepekong, and Mimpang) we should stick with locals that know the area as these sites can be tricky. We were not disappointed!! The folks that run this shop are great people and will... More

I had been diving for two time in the past and without corrective lenses, the undersea is not 100% beautiful. I choose this amazing dive center because they can provide me with corrective lenses and with it, undersea is 1000% beautiful !!

I had read about Geko DIve on Scubaboard, and also read the reviews here on Tripadvisor. Geko definitely lives up to their reputation. I did 9 dives with them - some local to Padangbai, and some further afield. I think my favourite dives had to be at The Jetty in Padangbai though. The macro stuff you see there, along with... More
